In my opinion it was a good movie, even though it felt more like a Thriller rather than a Horror. The movie was definitely interesting and even though it did not really feel as a Romantic movie, it definitely had a touch of it. However It wasn’t real Romance, rather a family love kind of love. Throughout the story the main character finds the clues quiet slow, which makes it happen very quickly in the end. I feel like they could have evened it out a little more. I also felt like the Day-Night balance was not so good. If i would rate it based on the said genre rather than on the movie itself, i would be very disappointed. The mysterious feel however was definitely present, and i did enjoy watching it as it was still an interesting plot.
Even though i had the feeling they could have made the storyline a little more clear in my opinion. Some switches were made a little too quick. overall i liked the movie and it did keep me interested. It was a good movie.
